Living in a disrupted climate

Our climate is already disrupted, and many communities are dealing with the consequences.  We have already seen temperature and rainfall records broken and an upswing in heat waves and extreme rainfalls, droughts, tornados, wildfires, and flooding. The widespread impact of this climate disruption on human, economic, and natural systems is occurring and will worsen. This workshop will explore how local government and communities are adapting to this new reality and planning for the future, while keeping their councils running.
